There is a hillfort on summit known as the round O [PNCW]. MacNeill (235) also mentions three wells on its lower slopes named Tobernasleiga, Tobergorey and Tobersool. Price interprets Tinoran as Tigh an Odhráin, without explaining the offending presence of the article before a personal name (Odhrán). More likely is that the n comes from the urú caused by teach, which was a neuter noun in Old Irish.   Tinoran Hill is the 1130th highest place in Ireland.

Further Information
by Bunsen7  23 Oct 2017
On 22/10/17 the gate to the forestry lane was closed over (though unlocked), so I peered into the laneway running parallel to the forestry lane and spotted a farmer to enquire about access.

There is no issue using the forestry laneway to access the hill on foot. I parked on the roadside to the front but well away from the entrance to the house but it might be preferable to drive up the forestry laneway. There is very limited parking.

There has been recent tree felling on the hill, particularly near the summit area, which is now largely covered in timber stacks. There is still no clear view eastwards from the summit though. The best of the views on this day was southward but it was misty and I could only really see as far as Hughstown.

The farmer also told me that there had been an academic studying the hillfort in the last 2 years. He said he had been given a large tome upon completion. He couldn't recall the name but I said sure presumably the internet has everything these days.

Low and behold this morning I found "The Baltinglass landscape and the hillforts of Bronze Age Ireland, by
O'Driscoll, James, at https://cora.ucc.ie/handle/10468/3532.

This appears to contain a lot of information that would be of interest to the hillwalker before a ramble up any of the hills around Baltinglass.

On Tinoran, although the original wider enclosures seemingly date from the bronze age, the author states that "The small enclosure at the summit of Tinoran, ‘The Round O’, may be Early Medieval as its slight banks and modest size are more suggestive of an Early Medieval ringfort than a later prehistoric enclosure."

The recent activity at the summit is not helping to preserve any of these features. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/946/comment/19768/
